Thank a Frenchman. For without Charles "the hammer" Martel, we would all speak Arabic, dressed our women in potato sacks and bow towards Mecca three times a day.

Today we celebrate 1280 years since the victory of Christianity against the invading Muslim hordes of the false Prophet. (http://www.thelatinlibrary.com/imperialism/notes/tours.html)

Islam is on the rise again. Who will be the next Charles Martel?

It has happened twice in history this is the third Jihad.

The one in the White House would surrender and convert all of us to Islam - if he only could.

The OP isn't talking about the Crusades. They came 300 years and later after the Muslim invasion of North Africa and Spain/Southern France. They also made their way into Eastern Europe--The Balkans, Hungary, etc.

but to be honest about history, the job was never finished. They only stopped the advance, they did not remove the invaders. That is why there are problems in the Balkans to this day. That little Yugoslavian problem that Clinton had....

Who gives a **** about the crusades. Orthodox Christians lived under the rule of Muslims took after they took Kiev just fine. The Muslims allowed them to practice Christianity no problem. Nothing changed.

Of course they allowed some Christians to practice their religion...Muslims needed the dhimmi underclass. Somebody had to work and pay the Jizya tax to their Muslim rulers after all.

Not to mention the annual tribute the Christians were forced to pay in women and children. Children used first as sex toys for the troops, then when they came of age used as cannon fodder - Jannisaries in the armies of the Crescent.
Christian women had a simpler role - used for the carnal pleasures of the Islamic elite. Their babies resulted from rape were discarded in the trash if the mother refused to convert to Islam.

No problem, nothing changed isn't it?:whistling:
